Hi, what are you looking for?

Luis Severino makes his first 2016 start for the RailRiders tonight.

Severino Promoted to AAA Scranton

Earlier today Baseball America’s Josh Norris tweeted that New York Yankees top pitching prospect Luis Severino will be promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  It was announced Thursday night Severino will start for the RailRiders, in his regular turn, Sunday.

There is no doubt that the young right-handed pitching prospect is one of the best in the game and arguably the top prospect in the system depending on who you ask. So far this season he has pitched in 8 games for the Trenton Thunder where he has a 2-2 with a 3.32 ERA over 38 innings. He did spend some time on the disabled list due to a blister on his pitching but not enough to slow down his development.  In two games since coming off of the DL he has allowed just 2 earned runs on three hits.

The 21-year old skyrocketed through the Yankees farm system last season, splitting the year between Class-A Charleston, Advanced-A Tampa and finally ending the season with the Double-A Trenton Thunder. If his success continues in Triple-A it is possible that fans could see him in The Bronx by the end of the season.
